POTD: “Aegun Targaryen” (A Game of Thrones Tribute Sig P220 Equinox)

    pdoggeth, who is a fan of TFB and HBO’s A Game of Thrones (GoT), created this tribute-themed Sig P220 Equinox. He writes …

    I am a gun enthusiast and love tinkering with guns, but also I am a huge Game of Thrones fan (or more accurately, A Song of Ice And Fire — the book series). For those who are unfamiliar with Game of Thrones, it’s like The Sopranos meets Lord of The Rings, and it’s quite excellent as a TV fantasy show.

    In celebration of the premiere of season 5 of Game of Thrones on HBO this Sunday, here’s a gun that I decorated last year for fun. It’s a Sig P220 Equinox that is partially cerakoted and custom gun gripped with the colors of House Targaryen. In essence, it’s “Aegun Targaryen” (a little GoT humor). The silver on the slide can also represent the Targaryen silver hair. As for the P220 itself, it’s my favourite 45 cal platform after 1911s.

    Very nifty. I have to admit I have not watched the TV series (well, not beyond the first few episodes) but I enjoyed the books. If you are a GoT fan, and have not read George R. R. Martin’s Tales of Dunk and Egg series, I highly recommend them. They are set in the GoT uniserve but I acually enjoyed them more than GoT itself.
